    When everthing calms down, i plan to send her a card in the mail to the clinic she works at. Im beyond gatefull have her be so genuinely concerned and helpful. She also helped me with DD when she was a new born and i suffered "baby blues" that wouldnt go away. Again, she was concerned and helped the right direction. No questions asked, just support and gentle guidance.
    She never labled me with pnd or any other disorder....just kept in touch and a close eye.
    It must be so wonderful for her to see mother's come out the other side....i know she would never take any credit for it, instead,as she told me with my DD "it was all you, i knew you would get there"....such a modest woman

    formal recognition, indeed!....suggestions?

    Not only a brilliant MCHN but a brilliant person in general by the sounds of it! Possibly write a letter to her employer detailing how she has helped you so wonderfully. I know where I live we have a local paper that you can nominate people for a thumbs up - maybe something like that where you live?

    I'm so pleased things seem a little brighter for you and I hope the only way from here is up xxxx

    Hi LMM,
    Ive been following along in the background and felt like I shouldn't post because I don't even have a baby yet, but I just wanted to say I'm so glad you found some support - it sounds wonderful and I really hope it's working out for you. I know when my sister had her little boy it was really hard for her..l..she ended up asking doc for help and he basically said to get over it; she even asked my mum for help and mum basically said she should get used to it (to taking care of bub on her own)..she lives in Canada and I'm in Aus and wish I could've been there for it.....she got through it but without any support. Good on you for asking for help and for being honest about how you're feeling. Many hugs! x

    I am really glad you're feeling better. It sounds really positive! Please do not feel bad about the home help. I actually feel better knowing our tax goes towards services like this, there should be more of it.

    I always get teary with kindness. I think another reason I had tears was because I too was feeling (perhaps not as severely) some of the things you are feeling. My DD is not as bad a sleeper nor has reflux but I am perpetually exhausted. I wish I had perhaps sought help like you did too. Best wishes xx

    card and choccies plus write to who ever manages MCHN in your state and tell them how you felt she went above and beyond. She'll get some recognition for her efforts.

    She would work for your local council. Call them up and ask them if they have a customer service excellence award or something that you can nominate her for. If not, I would send a detailed email of how she's helped to their feedback email address (or find out the best place to send it) I've had a few absolutely lovely emails sent from my story time parents to the general customer service email address and they got sent on to me, and CCed to some of my very senior managers. It definitely gets noticed when we get positive feedback like that

    Definitely contact your local council or health service to find out how to thank her formally. Theres also Nurse of the Year awards for each state and she definitely sounds like she deserves it!

    Hope you had a better day today xx

    I think by following up on thanking her officially this could also help you. Doing nice things for others often helps our mood too x
